Only students themselves are permitted to execute a drop or withdrawal from one or more course. Students who do not withdraw within the stated deadlines and in accordance with this policy will receive the grade earned for that course and forfeit any tuition refund.
Students receiving financial aid who plan to withdraw have the responsibility to follow UMGC's withdrawal procedures and should refer to UMGC Policy 220.60 – Federal Financial Aid Return of Funds Policy or contact their Financial Aid Office for more information. Please be advised that if a student receiving financial aid withdraws from a course, there may be financial penalties. To learn more about the Federal Return of Funds Policy, please visit the Return of Title IV Funds Information.
Refunds for Drop and Withdrawal: The amount of tuition that students are refunded is based on the date of the drop or withdrawal.
Students who drop in accordance with the stated deadline will be allotted a full tuition and non-application fee refund.
Students will be responsible for all fees and all or a portion of the tuition if they drop outside of the stated deadlines, as this would be considered a withdrawal.
Students who withdraw after the drop period and before the end of the withdrawal period will be responsible for all fees and all or a portion of the tuition as set forth in the Tuition Refund Schedule.
Students who withdraw from class and use military tuition assistance to pay for their classes may be responsible for a portion of the tuition depending upon what percentage of the course has been completed.
For information regarding the return of tuition assistance, please refer to the Return of Tuition Assistance section of the Refunds webpage.
